The weekend is free for you to visit the part of Scotland where your ancestors lived. The Monday following the weekend is open to allow you to do local research in the archives or Family History Society where your ancestor lived.
The Monday, if not researching locally allows you time to go to the Scottish Genealogy Society, or to return to the National Library, ScotlandsPeople or the National Archives.
